DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for validating the genuineness of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DKIM is enabled for a certain domain, a public encryption key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is stored on the mail server. When a new message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is delivered, that signature is verified by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily tell if the message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been modified on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or removed. This email validation system will boost your email safety, as you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your associates can do the exact same thing with the emails that you send them. Based on the particular mail service provider’s policies, a message that fails the examination may be erased or may emerge in the receiver’s inbox with a warning symbol.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

When you obtain one of the Linux shared hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain that you register under your shared account, so you won’t have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be issued instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that the messages are genuine, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized individuals to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting package, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed on our end and if this condition is satisfied, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any email address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can benefit from this feature, since it will guarantee a higher level of safety for your e-correspondence.
